COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Wit is a traditional Belgian-style wheat beer made with coriander, orange peel and a bit of oats. It’s a beer that opens up significantly upon warming with floral aromatics providing a nice contrast to the straightforward grainy flavors. The overall character is distinctly tart and dry, similar to a champagne.

Bottle - Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a thick creamy white head. Lots of yeasty, floral notes, white pepper, and a touch of orange peel. Not overly floral nose like some beers I’ve had, though it’s more over-the-top in the taste. Lots of floral and orange rind, with a light soured wheat, mineral, and a dry, yeasty finish. Floral, perfumey notes on the long finish. Light and creamy body, real smooth. Okay, but too much floral for me.

Capped 750 from Made in Oregon at the Portland Airport. Pours a light dishwater gold with a 4 finger creamy white head. With all the head all the aroma coming through is zest. Near med body. It’s quite lush. Flavor is smooth, zesty and fairly floral. Not one of those harsh wits. This one is comfortably laid back. Surpasingly excellent.

750ml bottle.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a huge fluffy white head that shows decent lacing. There is a steady stream of bubbles streaming from the bottom.

Sweet wheat aromas with some light lemony citrus and hints of orange zest and coriander.

Taste has some standard grains supporting the sweet wheat flavors and a dry lemony citrus finish.

Mouthfeel is lively and effervescent, dry and crisp.

This is a great wit and seriously drinkable. I could definitely drink this all day on a summer afternoon.

Smells a bit of wheat, looks quite good. This is somewhat champagne like but a bit too wheaty for my tastes. Decent but not worth a ten spot to me.

wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Tasted on 5/11/12 from a capped 750mL bottle brought to me and shared by my friend Chris, thanks Chris. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is cereal and bread malt with sweet orange peel and the traditional aroma of coriander. The flavor is creamy cereal and oats with some bread, the orange peel comes out more bitter than on the nose, with a nice hit of coriander. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long spiced orange peel finish.

In short: A spicy witbier with a relatively strong tartness. Above average for the style

How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed approximately 2 months after purchase. Bottle forwarded to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt

The look: Moderately cloudy blonde body topped by a short lived white head

In long: Nose is very wheaty with usual coriander, some orange peels and perfumed notes that fresh wild flowers. Taste is again very wheaty and with a much stronger tartness than in most Belgian wits. Also spiciness, mangos, coriander, doughy yeast, orange peels and flowers. Also tiny bit of dusty attic giving the beer a subtle rustic character. The body felt very light and the carbonation was a little too soft. But I enjoyed the fun tartness and the flowers sensation. A good witbier, but really not mindblowing. This Pure Wit wasn’t bad, but a better example of pure wit would be if a cop pulls you over and says "Papers" and you answer "Scissors" and drive away.

Hazy pale, cloudy yellow body topped y rich, fluffy crown. Feint coriander and very wheaty nose accompanied by barnyard presence. Farmousey, tangy wheat flavor with a sourish wheat finish.
